Ha ha, webcke tried to help this dude but he won't listen.  Just like what I said would happen. 
I am all ears, what is your advice? That is, assuming you actually have something of substance to say.

So you want to know how to train everyday without getting burned out or bored? Just take a nap when you get a chance and always eat a pre workout meal with carbs and protein.

Examples of such meals? Yeah, I am a n()()b Embarrassed

Then JFT regardless of mental state cause then you know your body got what it takes, doing everything right with nutrition and recovery. It's a maturity thing. Everyone has to go through some lack of discipline or motivation, some mistakes etc, to get it right. If you don't, it will just come up later. But in the long run, recovery and diet needs to be pretty much faultless, no real way around that. When you are young you can get away with a lot but if you want to keep at it rest of life, don't fool yourself.
Thank you for a first mature reply.

I want to ask you something else

Sometimes I plan to work a particular body part, like, say, my back, but when I go to the gym, it is so crowded and, sure enough, the cable pulls and rows are constantly taken and I can't just do something else, because I did legs yesterday and I did biceps and triceps the day before and they still haven't recovered. It really kills a motivation when, instead of working out, you waste precious time in an already limited time window to work out hunting for the available bench or a dumbbell. I work out at 24 hour fitness, and when I am able to work out, the place is crowded and when I can't (work, asleep, whatever), sure enough it's empty.

Anyone else dealt with this?

There are tons of things I could suggest to you but somehow I feel whatever I say will just bounce right off you or go over your head so why bother.  Benz was right...meltdown. 
Try me. I don't even want to rebuttal anything. All I want is some advice, motivation, kick in the ass, whatever.

I don't know what you mean by "burned out" lol If that's so excruciating to you then you are better off doing nothing.  Roll Eyes
Benz nailed it.

First and foremost of all, I apologize if this doesn't belong here. There is a section for teenagers and for people over 35. I am 31, so I get I'm SOL.

I have a problem of motivation. This is not your typical lazy beer drinking pizza eating loser whining how he can't get his ass up to complete simple goals, even those that have jack shit to do with bodybuilding.

I have a problem of burning out. I have periods when I constantly attend a gym and if circumstances don't allow me, I can set up my own minigym in my apartment ( I have a pilates ball and two 25lbs dumbbells ). But sometimes I stop working out altogether. It really has nothing to do with lazyness. I am simply burned out of the routine.

I have asked people before what to do about beating boredom. I have received an advice on trying different exercizes, which, of course, not only is good for breaking up the boredom, it is also healthy for the body, as it adjusts quickly to the same strain it is subjected to and constant variety of exercizes constantly puts the body in the unusual and uncomfortable (in a good way) circumstances. It worked.

But sometimes I just feel burned out of exercizing altoghether. Sometimes I wonder if people like Jay Cutler or Markus Ruhl ever wake up one day and go: "If I see another dumbbell or cross cable machine or anything having anything to do with a physical exercise, I will shoot myself". That is how I feel sometimes and believe you me, I have ways and ways to go before my physique looks even remotely like that of either of those two.

I don't need to be told that I am just lazy and my fat ass (5'10", 220 lbs) needs to get its act together. I already know that Cheesy. I just want some kind of a pep talk or some kind of a mental therapy (as much mental therapy can be possible using typed words on the internet). I heavily suspect that this may not even be a problem, but a symptom of another problem.

I know that bodybuilding is not the end, but merely means to the end. Most bodybuilders I personally know told me that if I pump muscles to pump muscles, then I have problems. Having 25" arms shouldn't be my sole meaning of life. It is a merely a decoration of sorts, kind of like a tie for men, or earrings for women. And I am currently at crossroads in my life, doing a lot of soul searching. And while I don't know yet who I am and what I want to do, I know I want to build my body to look, as the saying goes, "jacked". Not for someone else's seal of approval, and not for the ladies (Ok, may be a little Smiley), but for my own self improvement.

So, I hope some one can relate and be my personal Tony Robbins.

Thanks.

I was reading Arnold's bodybuilding encyclopedia, you know, the one with his arm of the front cover from back in a day. He says these days you can make much more money in bodybuilding then you used to. This was in late 90's, so I'm sure that this statement is even more true a good decade later.

So, how can one use lifting weights, eating right and posing in front of cameras as a source of income?
